The United States women’s soccer team didn’t have the easiest time in the first World Cup knockout round, but the Americans were able to get by Colombia.
Things will be even more difficult Friday night.
The Americans advanced with a 2-0 win Monday to set up a clash with the Chinese on Friday night in Ottawa. It will be the first Women’s World Cup matchup between the two nations in almost 20 years, as the U.S. knocked off China in the 1999 final.
The deck could proved to be stacked against Team USA, which will play without two of its best players in Megan Rapinoe and Lauren Holiday. They received yellow cards in back-to-back games, thus ruling them out against China.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on FOX. Fans unable to watch on TV also can watch on FOX Sports’ live stream by clicking the photo below.
